't want people to take their stuff because the government has no right to do that. today, the obama campaign lashed out against the katrina criticism. >> mitt romney's allies in a desperate attempt to change the subject from a video in which mitt romney wrote off half of the american people are circulating a video that was covered by the campaign press corps at that time. i have got to tell you, if the romney campaign thinks this is what americans are looking for tonight in place of plans for the middle class, they are in for a surprise. >> so you are saying this speech is no big deal then? >> well, i don't think anybody anies that the government's response to katrina was sufficient. >> bill: it's not about katrina. it's about how you frame your criticisms. again, you can decide whether the president's rhetoric is acceptable or not. but again the key question becomes would it be smart for mitt romney it bring this up in the debate tonight. you know the president is going to hammer the governor over 47% remark. the campaign just did that you know it's going to happen again tonight. t
to the people at home. mitt romney talked right to president obama, addressed him by name as mr. president. this was a very deliberative thing and deliberate thing that mitt romney did. no question that's something that he practiced. you know, we know he spent countless hours of practicing and preparing and it just sort of shows you that it's not just what people say or die say in these debates, it's how they say it. it's their body language. it's -- it's the way they look and absolutely kril to the overall feel. you know, i've been talking a lot and looking at this debate a lot, especially the morning after, and it's pretty clear there wasn't necessarily a win or loss because of a zinger, it was the overall feel that mitt romney was really present and president obama really wasn't. >> dana bash, i have your assignment from here going forwards and that is that 47% of folks asked said the debate did not influence their vote one way or another. so you have something to work with coming out of this. dana, thanks. >>> before the dust even settled from this first presidential debate, there were
. you can see the stage behind me. everything planned right down to the minute tonight. president obama will enter from the right. the governor from massachusetts, governor romney entering from the left. but to give you an idea of the intimate setting here, about 1,000 people inside this debate hall when it starts. look behind the cameras tonight. we're inside a hockey arena that normally seats 8,000, but they've created this intimate setting as tens of millions watch from their living rooms tonight. when president obama and mitt romney walk onto that stage tonight, it will be the first time they've met face-to-face in four years. last time, during the presidential race in 2008, during those back-to-back democratic and republican presidential debates during the primaries, when candidates from both sides were called onto the stage, it was then senator obama and governor romney, huddled talking. they have spoken by telephone. the president congratulated romney when he clinched the republican nomination. and there was this moment in 2007, a labor day parade. >> good luck to you today. >> r
of the youngest people here, how old are you? >> 25. >> you'd be voting for barack obama? >> right. who are you going to vote for? >> romney. >> what did he say. >> he's a business owner and knows how to save money, cap things when spending gets too high and how to run a successful business. it's why he is where he's at z we have to run the country like a business. >> you're one of the youngest people here, barack obama has been doing well among women. did obama win you over here? >> i'm a former kindergarten teacher. i believe in getting alochblg i'm ready for a president to help get along with both parties to help our country do better. >> we're going show that segment because that is the number one segment of the debate. you had a different perspective. >> i didn't there are many specifics how he's going to do it. just felt like numbers didn't add up. i think that is hout president kind of came across with that. the numbers just don't add up. we've got a big decision and big things to make over next couple years w romney there, he's going to try to get reelected. >> let's see -- . >> obama i
have to say. there is a noise exception right now, though, as we welcome president obama and governor romney. [applause] [applause] >> jim. >> moderator: yesman, welcome to you both. let's start with the economy, segment one, and let's begin with jobs. what are the major differences between the two of you about how you would go about creating new jobs? you have two minutes, each of you have two minutes to start. a coin toss has determined, mr. president, you go first. obama: thank you very much, jim, for this opportunity, i want to thank governor romney and the university of denver for your hospitality. there are a lot of points i want to make tonight, but 20 years ago i became the luckiest man on earth because michelle obama agreed to marry me, so i just want to wish, sweetie, you happy an rers ri and let you know a year from now we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. [laughter] four years ago we went through the worst financial be crisis since the great depression. the financial system had frozen up, and because of the resilience and the determination of the am
're going to lose, as mike said, the liberal media is mad at president obama right now. and there's going to be a lot of wailing and nashing on the web tomorrow about this. not at romney. saying president obama failed from the left. and then the middle i think is going to come to a conclusion like we've had around this table. they're going to take some lumps for the next 24 hours and like the obama campaign does they'll go back to the swing states and drill back on the stuff and trying to take romney apart piece by piece and get ready for what is now going to be i think a very very very heavy duty second debate. this is, governor romney won what he wanted which is he wanted to turn this into a three series of debates. president obama is going to come, going to bring his a game to that second debate because he knows he has to. >> rose: verse we have the vice president debate. katty kay, what did you think? >> yes, i mean i agree that this was mitt romney's night. he was punchier, crisper, president obama seemed tired. he was convoluted. the feedback i was getting from people viewing from
or it was the real barack obama at the debate, larry. >> all right. many thanks, we appreciate it. >>> so mitt romney outhustled, outfacted, outenergized and outinformed president obama. msnbc's chris matthews, an old pal of mine, completely went off the rails. take a listen to this. >> where was obama tonight? romney, i love the split screen. staring at obama. addressing him like the prey. he did it just right. i'm coming at an incumbent. i got to beat him. you got to beat the champ and i'm going to beat him tonight. what was romney doing? he was winning. >> he sure was, chris. he was winning big time. so now that romney is on a roll, where does he run after last night's sweeping win? let's talk. here now is democratic strategist steve mcmahon. and then cnbc contributor geoff jennifer rubin, author of the "washington post" right turn blog. jennifer was it a game changer for the whole presidential race? >> it potentially can be. what has to happen now romney has to build on that day after day. the difficulty they've had, this was true in the primary as well, they have a few good days and then they ge
company, i tell you, it's miserable right now. if obama thinks for a minute we're not going to find ways around the health care bill, he's crazy. it's going to cost -- neil: but you answered something interesting. we can always play with numbers here. i wish i could do that on my grade point average in college, i couldn't. it was what it was. that's history. one thing that's interesting that romney tried to do is you're talking about how very few small businesses, mr. president, are affected by your coming hike and in the upper rate, but he said they doing the for close to -- do account for close to half of the employees hired by small businesses. i'm paraphrasing it. look, did you get a sense that he was deliberately going after the president on each and every item that he found offensive in a prosecuting fashion? some looked at that saying now you're losing me so vang the president. what -- so advantage the president. what do you say? >> i think the president just doesn't get it, frankly, and any time we can challenge his premise, we ought to do it. i think romney did it very well. pre
for the obama campaign. lou: you just excited the nation . watching uni right now at the prospect of that. that can be glorious in so many different ways. that comes up next week. our coverage, as always. john kerry coached the president. rob portman coached the governor. we get the feeling that he will be back. carry remains an open question, doesn't it? >> i think the senator will still be the sparring partner from everything we're hearing from the obama folks. i talked to portman in the spin room for a while. and he said that we are not surprised. not one thing. the only thing that we are surprised that is what they didn't hear. know nothing of the 47% take, nothing of bain capital shimano attacks. they were surprised at how passive the president was, and he said frankly the president was not as good as me. lou: well, modest assessment, appropriately. a sparring partner should seek in some ways to emulate the real thing. sounds like he was on track. good to have you with this. thank you so much. as we mentioned. featuring the vice-president of contenders taking place next thursday in d
post columnist and ventriloquist knows why obama is ahead, righting the nation which is reluctant to declare a president a failure is especially reluctant to give up on the first african-american president. yes. somebody had to say it, the president is only winning because he is black. i have always said, our system is rigged in favor of african-americans. now, i am not going to win an knapp award, naok, naacp award r saying this but black people in this country have gotten one free ride after another, starting with the first one, and let me -- it is true! it is true! >> okay, let me ask the white people. okay, let me ask the white people. i believe there might be one or all of them in my audience, right? has a black person ever thanked you for freeing the slaves? when i walked up to african-americans on the street and say, you're welcome, they don't even know what i am talking about. it is like we don't teach it in the schools anymore. the point is, americans are afraid to fire barack obama because of white guilt. and we have got to free ourselves from it as george well writes
: we have a better idea tonight of what we want on inside the obama administration right after the deadly attack on the u.s. mission in libya. this comes as we get new information about the investigation into that assault. james rosen has the latest. >> you should not assume that all that we could do or have been doing is restricted solely to benghazi. >> f.b.i. agents only today made their first for ainto the consulate compound, almost a month after the attacks and escorted by u.s. military personnel. >> we've not been sitting around waiting for information to come to us. we've been actively chasing leads in various ways. >> earlier this week, the "washington post" published sensitive papers that a reporter retrieved from the consulate grounds, including an hourly schedule for ambassador steves for the day he died. >> frankly, none of us was surprised to see them at the site. >> fox news learned security aides to president obama and intelligence officials remained divided longer than has been disclosed about how to characterize the benghazi attacking to the public. the team ma
a two-point bump. either way it's news. (laughter) right now, folks, the obama people where are december it fromly trying to lower expectations. it's sad, just listen to obscene your advisor and anthropomorphized vanishing sound david plouffe. (laughter) jim? >> we've accepted that governor romney will have a good night. he's prepared more than any candidate in himselfry and shown himself to be a good debater through the years. we're sure he'll put on quite a show wednesday. >> yes, if there's one word america associates with mitt romney it's "show." (laughter) meanwhile, the romney people aren't playing these silly games. they're just being honest when they hail the president as a uniquely gifted speaker who is widely regarded as one of the most talented political communicators in modern history. (laughter) yes! he's a one-in-a-generation statesman whose rhetorical gift touched the human soul! when he speaks sparrows of the wood alight upon barack's shoulders as they did upon saint francis of assisi. he's no mere man he's a silver-tongued angel whose words can cure the sick, soothe the
the candidates have to say. there is a noise exception right now, though as we welcome president obama and governor romney. [ cheers and applause ] >> jim. >> gentlemen, welcome to you both. let's start the economy segment 1, and let's begin with jobs. what are the major differences between the two of you about creating new jobs? you have two minutes -- each of you have two minutes to start. a coin toss has been determined mr. president you go first. >> obama: thank you very much for this opportunity. i want to thank governor romney and the university of colorado for your hospitality. 20 years ago i became the luckiest man on earth because michelle obama agreed to a marry me. so i just want to wish sweety you happy anniversary, and let you know a year from now we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. [ laughter ] >> obama: four years ago we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. millions of jobs were lost the auto industry was on the brink of collapse the financial system has frozen up and because of the resilience
felt he was being beat? >> it was all stylistic. substantively barack obama was right on, because mitt romney was breath-takingly dishonsest last night. mitt romney was more in control of the debate and walked all over jim lehrer and obama didn't fight back. obama had the facts and didn't use them, but this is what obama does. in 2008 when he ran against hillary clinton, people said he wasn't fighting hard enough and against john mccain and in the health care debate, he wasn't fighting hard enough. he won all the fights. >> what's interesting, our first team and others brought up the comparison of the incumbent curse. george w. bush, ronald reagan in '84, george h.w. bush in '92, the president didn't seem to be on his game. mitt romney made a surprise appearance to a cpac event in denver still courting the conservatives but say if you know people that voted for president obama, tell them to come on over to our side. that's ironic because i don't imagine he knows many conservative republicans who voted for president obama the last time or plan to this time. nevertheless, you're no fan o
and style that obama had. >> those were simultaneous camera shots right there. obama was looking down during the substance that mitt romney was saying -- >> it's not effective. it would have been better if it's like you and beckel. you've been in a cage match -- >> what was he writing? >> maybe he was writing notes to himself. >> for what? >> he was writing i heart michelle. for his anniversary. >> then next to it, i heart teleprompter. i heart it. >> i heart jasper. >> i would write that. >> i must say, i'm surprised that you guys don't pick up that the left has absolutely abandoned obama today. >> they're fair weathered friends. i thought you guys -- i know there is celebration among republicans today. but the real story, to my mind, is how the left jumped ship on obama in the middle of that debate last night because they wanted him to play dirty and he didn't do it. >> the only way you can make a comeback with this crowd if all of a sudden you go on a pilgrimage and you become a pitch person and then you have a reality show. marry a kardashian. >> you're not going to play dirty on the lef
. it was a debate between a rusty president obama and a well rehearsed mitt romney. >> reporter: right out of the gate, it was clear, mitt romney came to play. >> the president has a view very similar to the view he had when he ran four years ago that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle down government would work. >> reporter: president obama sounded a familiar alarm, warning of romney's been there, done that economics. >> the approach that governor romney is talking about is the same sales pitch made in 2001 and 2003. and we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years. >> reporter: but whether it was health care, jobs, or medicare, it was romney who stood out for his aggressive style. >> i just don't know how the president could have come into office facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, an economic crisis at the kitchen table and spend his energy and passion for two years fighting for obama care. >> reporter: the president made his points in a slower, laid back manner, often appearing disengaged. it's not that h
in the next two debates. and i think team obama is probably looking at that right now and saying okay, we have to step into this debate. we can't stand back and i would differ with you, rachel about the moderator point in this debate. i actually like this kind of debate because the moderator is not a factor. he leaves it up to the debaters to make it a debate. mitt romney's team knew that and mitt romney came into this debate determined to make it a debate. no one brought up green jobs. the moderator didn't bring up green jobs. mitt romney did to use it as a tool against the president. the president has to realize that his side and he is under the same obligation to drive the debate from his side himself. the moderator is not going to drive this debate. >> that's exactly right. that's sort of the point that i was trying to make about how the different approaches of romney and obama played very differently with this sort of a format and that romney just rolled over the format and made it about everything he wanted it to be. everything on domestic policy on which he is the weakest was just avoid
whose candidates loose. you can pick either president obama or romney. >> all right. remember being a kid looking forward to that huge christmas catalog? thecitisments now a thing of the past or are they? why one store is bringing them back. >> retail is all about smart phones and tablets. they are launching apps and going digital for everything, then why is restoration hardware going back to the 1980s? this is about as low tech as you can get. restoration hardware is mailing out this 700 page boat anchor of a catalog to thousands of homes right now along with a smaller one. it's like the sears wish book from the 70s and 80s and clocks it at more than three and a half pounds. what gives in they want to make a statement and become a living room coffee table book that people flip through all year long. the smaller book is for the bathroom. the social action website change.org has launch aid petition drive urging the store to limit the mailing say figure it ends up going to the trash can doesn't that stink? the store points out it's made from recycled paper. the mail service is thrill
the split screen, staring at obama, addressing him. he did it just right. i'm coming at an incumbent. i've got to beat him. and i don't care what this guy moderator whatever he think he ises because i'm going to ignore him. what was romney doing? he was winning. >> he was winning tonight. that's my thought. >> you give him five more of these nights, forget it. >> it puts the pressure on the president. >> obama should wash msnbc. he will learn something every night. this stuff we're watching, this is like first grade to most of us. we know all of this stuff. >> i was in front of a crowd last night in denver, colorado and i know they're stunned. i can feel it. the president tonight was disappointing when he allowed mitt romney to talk about $716 billion in medicare and the president did not come out and explain it and go after it. i thought mitt romney tonight was in his wheel house when he was talking about the economy. >> paul ryan is cutting 716 for medicare. the exact same number in his budget which was passed by the republican house and the president never mentioned it. >> it does re
. >> cnn had a debate timer. if their numbers are right, president obama actually got a little bit more time. >> it is probably because obama had a lot of pauses in his speech where mitt romney kept going and going. that is one thing i really did like about his speech is he kept moving on to the next point where obama was a something and pause for a while and then kept going. i really liked mitt romney's presence and how he kept moving onto the next point. i did like also how obama kept asking mitt romney about what his plan is. he never said what his plan is. he just kept saying he has a plan. >> thank you, peter. >> we are going to go to miami, florida. >> romney never gave me an idea on what he was going to do with obamacare. >> you have to hit the volume on your tv. are getting feedback. i am going to move on. sorry about that. next up is a republican from pennsylvania. >> i was very pleased with the debate. i thought it went well. i certainly do think that mitt romney came out ahead. i thought the timing was pretty even. it really finally put everything out there, the differences b
, especially ohio, where president obama is ahead right now. these are the voters who get ads every day, who see the conditions every day. will they move in the same direction? that's the big question. >> how bad does the president think it was and what he's going to do? >> reporter: the president knows he lost last night. he and his team know he's got to bring it in the next debate. he's got to answer mitt romney face-to-face. >> all right, george, thank you so much. and we have a footnote for everyone. you and i talked about it last night, about the star of last night's debate, who was not on the stage. we are talking big bird. as jake told us, unda torrent o creative people took to the internet about the bird today, and these were our favorites. will work for food. today is brought to you by the letter u, for unemployed. and this tweet, dregtly from big bird. reminding us he's about 6 years old, quote, my bedtime is usually 7:45, but i was really tired and fell asleep at 7:00. did i miss anything? >>> and, now, we turn and we have breaking news to tell you about tonight. american airlines
's enormous pressure on president obama and governor romney right now. we're asking debate watchers, those who watched the debate to the history books. tonight, just like we will after every upcoming debate, we're breaking it down, issue by issue. this means more talk from the candidate on a particular topic. looking at some of the totals, we'll show you what's going on. but, first, here are some of the highlights from the first presidential debate. >> what things would i cut from spending? first of all, i will eliminate all programs by this test. if they don't pass it. is the program so critical, it's worth boring money from china to pay for it? obama care is on my list. i apologize mr. president. jim, i'm sorry, i had stop the subsidy to pbs. i love big bird, like you too. but i won't keep on spending money to borrow money from china to pay for. i'll take programs that are currently good programs but could be run more efficiently at the state level and send them to state. and make government more efficient, cut back the number of employees, combine agencies and departments, cutbacks done thr
for seniors for kids with disabilities. >> mr. president -- >> obama: and that is not the right strategy. >> governor do you support simpson boles? >> romney: i have my own plan. but the president should have grabbed it take it go to congress and -- >> obama: that's what we have done -- >> romney: but you have been president four years. it's now four years later, we still have trillion dollars deficits. if you are reelected we'll get to a trillion dollars debt. you said before you would cut the deficit in half. you found $4 trillion of ways to reduce or get closer to an balanced budget, except we still show trillion dollars deficits every year. that doesn't get the job done. why is it that i don't want to raise taxes? actually you said it back in 2010 you said look i'm going to extend the tax policies that we have. i'm not going to raise taxes on anyone, because when the economy is slow, you shouldn't raise taxes on anyone. well, the economy is still growing slow. so if you believe the same thing, you just don't want to raise taxes on people. and the reality is it's
the right, but people who love barack obama, almost every one of them, every pundit was saying that he lost. some saying he lost decisively. some saying he lost so badly, it could cost him the election. to me, it's hyperbolic. it speaks to the fact mitt romney changed the narrative of the campaign. >> what does it mean, jim, for mitt romney. if we accept he won the night last night, how does he make it about more than one night and a turning point in the campaign? >> i can't emphasize how big last night was for mitt romney. you have to view it from the mitt romney that came into the debate. conservatives were down on him. his staff were down on him. donors were reluctant to give money to him. most thought he had no opportunity to win the race. he comes out of the debate as somebody who reassured conservatives. his biggest critics are applauding him. the donors are excited again. republicans will gather around him. he has a week or two of positive coverage. he's not going to have conservatives belly aching from the sidelines about his performance. he has a chance to reinvent himself. he has
